Staff working within the Earth Science and Engineering programme at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have discovered a way to dedicate more time to analysis of the physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere, ocean and earth, and less on data preparation.
To help them do this work more efficiently, the department has recently purchased Data Assistant from Exprodat.
Professor Abdulkader Al Afifi, affiliate with the Ali Al Naimi Petroleum Engineering Research Center and leader of the Arabian Plate Geology (APG) research on the geology of the Arabian Peninsula and subsurface carbon dioxide disposal, explains why:
“Exprodat’s Data Assistant is a valuable bridge for rapid data exchange between ArcGIS Pro and seismic interpretation and modeling software. It frees geoscientists at KAUST to focus on the interpretation of subsurface geological and seismic datasets, instead of dealing with complicated data formats and transfer protocols”.
Exprodat, a Getech Group company that develops GIS solutions for energy companies around the world, created Data Assistant to enable simple transfer of sub-surface information from Petrel, Kingdom and other industry software products & standard formats into Esri’s ArcGIS suite.
Getech’s Chief Operating Officer, Chris Jepps explains more about how his company is supporting organisations such as KAUST:
“At Getech and Exprodat we maintain close links with many respected academic institutions across the world, and we are delighted to extend this network further through our relationship with KAUST. We’re pleased that, like many of our other academic partners, KAUST is able to use our software to help train students while furthering our geoscientific understanding of the world.”
